Okay, it is once again time for the gift giving season, and as I write this on November 16th, I realize that I have not only not started my shopping, but also that I have no idea when I will start said shopping. So I hereby dedicate this space to everyone out there who doesn't get their shopping done until Christmas Eve, and occasionally get stuck buying things like plaid ties because what you really wanted was sold out. I understand. You're not alone.
